2022 Lamborghini Urus Review, Pricing, and Specs


On paper, the supercar-bred, 641-hp Lamborghini Urus sounds overmatched against the 707-hp, Hellcat-powered Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. However, only one of these outrageous machines owns the crown as the quickest SUV we’ve ever run at Virginia International Raceway in our annual Lightning Lap event. For those who couldn’t guess, it’s the Lambo, which costs nearly a quarter-million dollars. That’s the entry price to own a wildly styled SUV of this pedigree. Along with unbelievable track skills for its size, the Urus offers some things that the Lamborghini Aventador and Huracán don’t: a back seat, useable cargo space, and the ability to tow. While its interior craftsmanship isn’t as good as its supercar siblings’, and it’s the very definition of a gas-guzzler, the 2022 Lamborghini Urus is easily the most badass family hauler on the planet.

What’s New for 2022?

For 2022, Lamborghini doesn’t make any notable changes to the Urus. The super SUV is still powered by a 641-hp twin-turbo V-8 that pairs with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Italian automaker is known for introducing limited-edition models and special appearance packs, any of which could be added during the model year.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

Although the Urus costs close to a quarter of a million dollars, it’s still the least costly Lamborghini you can buy. Add the fact that it can haul more than two people and an ample amount of luggage and it’s also the best value in the Italian company’s lineup. Our recommended version would play up its highly extroverted style with the new Pearl Capsule appearance package. We especially like it in the Verde Mantis green paint, which is offset by black exterior details and huge 23-inch wheels. The interior color scheme is set to match. We’d add the front seats with ventilation and massage functions for increased luxury, and we’d switch to the four-seat configuration that reduces passenger capacity by one but brings rear-seat power adjustments and heated surfaces. We assume rich people don’t want to ride three-deep in the back seat anyway. The other options we’d choose are the upgraded sound system, hands-free tailgate, rear-seat entertainment system, and the available Off-Road drive modes.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Urus is powered by a twin-turbo V-8 that makes a stout 641 horsepower, burbles deeply when idling, and absolutely howls under full throttle. Permanent all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission conspire with all that power to enable fantastic acceleration. In our testing, the Urus went from rocketed to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and tore up the quarter-mile in 11.3 seconds at 121 mph. Likewise, Lamborghini estimates a top speed of 190 mph. The Urus feels athletic from behind the wheel, too, with quick steering and stable high-speed cornering. With air springs at all four corners, the Urus has adjustable ride heights based on its various drive modes. Standard carbon-ceramic brakes ensure that the Urus stops as well as it goes—braking from 70 mph to a stop in 149 feet.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Those wealthy enough to afford a Urus likely don’t care about fuel economy, but Lamborghini’s heaviest model sure likes to drink. The EPA estimates that the Urus will deliver 12 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway. While we haven’t tested its real-world mpg on our 200-mile highway fuel-economy route, its mileage will certainly vary based on driving style.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Inside, occupants are treated to a dramatic cabin that’s classic Lambo. Jet-fighter design cues abound, with the start button hiding beneath a red flip cover and the shifter looking like a jet’s throttle. To the left of the shifter are levers that control the drive modes and allow customizable performance settings. There is plenty of faux-suede and carbon-fiber trim, while the infotainment system and reconfigurable gauges are straight out of an Audi. The back seat has good passenger space and can fit between two and three people depending on which seating configuration is selected. Interior cubby storage is highlighted by useful door pockets and a bin behind the floating center stack. The Urus also offers up to 22 cubic feet in its cargo area but that drops by 2 cubes with the optional rear bucket seats.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Every Urus is packed with the latest connectivity and infotainment features. Along with a fully digital gauge cluster, there are two touchscreens built into the center stack that include controls for the climate system, audio, and more. The screens have crisp graphics and large icons, but they’re not as intuitive as traditional knobs and buttons.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The Lambo SUV also offers an array of standard and optional driver-assistance technology, including a night-vision camera. For more information about the Urus’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Standard adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
  • Standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Available self-parking assist

    Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

    Lamborghini doesn’t provide a lengthy warranty, with three years and no mileage cap. Likewise, it doesn’t come with complimentary scheduled maintenance. However, the Italian automaker does offer extended warranty and maintenance plans for extra coin.

    • Limited warranty covers three years or unlimited miles
    • Powertrain warranty covers three years or unlimited miles
    • No complimentary scheduled maintenance
